The Trials of a Busy Mom

Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and that makes me smile.

Last night I read Green Eggs and Ham as a bedtime story.

I tried to point out the message that you should always TRY the food before you stubbornly refuse to eat any of it, but I think the point may have been lost on the 6 year old.

Let me share a few of great Dr. Seuss quotes, in honor of the very creative man who was Dr. Seuss.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. (the Lorax)

Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.

Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.

And my personal favorite, since it reminds me of the massive amounts of fun we had doing Seussical,

A person’s a person, no matter how small.

Speaking of the theater, Megan asked me yesterday “Why do you do those plays every summer?” My answer to her was, “Because they don’t do them in the winter.” I thought it was a pretty clever answer, myself.

So have yourself a wonderful day, and remember not to take yourself too seriously.
